So I actually liked the pacing in LOK. Yes, I’m aware that there was a lot more going on in every episode than in ATLA, but I like it that way. One of my pet peeves while watching ATLA was all the time I’d spend just sitting there, waiting for something to happen. I like when there’s always something happening. I like how in LOK, I’m always glued to my seat, whereas in ATLA, I’d sometimes be like, “Oh, it doesn’t look like anything interesting is happening, just some fluff. I’ll go make some coffee.”
Of course, I wish that the seasons were longer. Not so that the pacing could be “fixed,” though. I wish that we’d seen more on probending… during episode 2, it seemed like it was going to play some huge role, but it ended up sort of being cast aside in the later episodes. I also would’ve liked to have seen more of Tahno. Especially later on. He looked so depressed without his bending, I wish we could’ve seen how he managed to cope. I feel like seeing him coming to terms with his lack of bending would have been very powerful.
Does anyone even know why there were only 12 episodes? I mean, I know it’s a spinoff series, but extra 2-3 episodes wouldn’t have hurt anyone, just for the sake of expanding upon some details. Or was it like, “Hey Bryke, you guys only have 12 episodes to work with. Lol.”
This weekend at the American Library Association, Dark Horse announced Yang and Gurihiru will return for a second “Avatar: The Last Airbender” graphic novel series called “The Search,” which explores the biggest unsolved mystery in “Avatar” lore: what happened to Prince Zuko’s mother?
do you ever casually say “i ship it” in a real life conversation then get strange looks from people who have no idea what the fuck you’re talking about because you forget it’s not part of normal people’s vocabulary
